Personally, no; however, I do not see an issue with wearing wholecuts, in most working environments.
I have had a few suits drenched before, from trail-and-error, the best solution I have found is: 1. Put a hanger in the jacket and use a trouser-hanger for the trousers (do not use a hanger where the trousers need to folded) and leave outside to dry out. If you are not able to leave clothes outsiude without protection from rain, you could leaver them indoors. 2. Once dry, brush down both garments 3. Iron on a low heat However, if someone does have a better...
Cost of cloth in relation to overall cost, would depend on the tailor; however, do bear in mind, the main cost is labour. If you plan to purchase the cloth in the hope to save so money - it could end up costing you more as the tailor may be able to negotiate a better rate. Not worth doing, i. some tailors do not like it, and ii. causes problems, if the tailor makes a mistake on the cloth or needs more cloth If you have unusual cloth that is not easy to source - then...
The toes of my daily shoes do 'wear' out quick; however, for shoes not worn regularly, it is not an issue. For the latter, this is not only because of the amount of time I wear the shoes, but also the surfaces I walk on and how long the shoes are on. Probably worth testing out.
I have got segs added to my work shoes and have seen the benefit. What about shoes that I will not wear as often, it is worth doing and my other concern would be leaving marks on wood, etc flooring? When getting the shoes resoled, a sunked seg is possible but at the moment I am restricted to what the local clobber can do.

Disappointing, although there were lots of shoes in my size (mostly black and dark brown); some of the shoes were £460. I was tempted by the black suede single monks and light brown loafers, there were 3 opera pumps in my size but left empty handed. I wanted to go early and look at Lobb too; however, that was not possible. C&J, Trickers and Fosters did have some good prices.
My Church's sizes are as follows: Lasts 73 & 108 - 8.5F Last 173 - 8F Last 130 - unknown This may not be apply to you, but worth considering when looking at sizes; from the lasts mentioned above, all fit well.

Although, they are a disadvantage when trying to sell your old clothes; however, being a clothes hoarder, I do not need to worry about selling unwanted clothes.
My department is split into three small groups. My group has seven people (five males, two male) -two male colleagues wear dark trousers (black and dark grey) with light brown loafers. Even when I was working in the City of London, I saw people with dark trousers with light brown shoes; although I saw medium/dark brown shoes a lot more often than light brown. Is it becoming more acceptable (to wear light coloured shoes with dark trousers to work)? I would say so. I...
